Attack of the Francesco Scognamiglio ruffled shirt

Ruffled-shirt

Aaah! Run! Hide! The Ruffle Shirted Overlords are coming to take over the wooooorrrllld!

Seriously, does this not look to you like the kind of thing an arch villain of some form would wear, or will we be the only ones having nightmares tonight?

Further reason for nightmares: it's $1,106 from Louisa Viaroma.

We'd say more about this disturbing turn of events, but we're currently hiding behind the sofa in the HQ, so over to you: what do you think of it?

    It looks like a great big sea anemone!

    Those shoulder things won’t even let you hide it under a jacket. It looks like some kind of medieval fantasy armor to me–like the ruffles should be spikes.
    I think it’s much scarier this way, though.

    it’s like from some bad sci-fi movie.. “Take me to your leader”.

    Oh my… I find I agree with Mousy actually. I’m definitely having “Under the Sea” flashbacks.

    The Frill-necked Lizard, or Frilled Lizard also known as the Frilled Dragon, (Chlamydosaurus kingii) is so called because of the large ruff of skin which usually lies folded back against its head and neck. The neck frill is supported by long spines of cartilage, and when the lizard is frightened, it gapes its mouth showing a bright pink or yellow lining, and the frill flares out, displaying bright orange and red scales.

    It reminds me of a sea monster. 🙁
